Just because your semen is clearer than usual does not necessarily mean you have a low sperm count. Sperm are microscopic. If you're worried about your sperm count, you'll have to have a sperm count done. Talk to your doctor about it.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
